Be it Rubik’s Cube, Connect Four, Jenga or the like, Americans have spent hours upon hours playing innovative games that test one’s strategic mind, along with hand-eye coordination. Now, gamers can add one more to the list: Hookum, the world’s first multi-player ring game of skill, inspired by a centuries-old game found throughout the Caribbean.
The object is to drop a ring out of your hand just so that it swings outside, with a bit of an arc, and barely reaches the front of a hook (the trick is that the momentum dies right at the tip of the hook).
It’s that easy – once you get, you got and then you want more! Add a few friends and Hookum goes from being an addictive personal challenge to a fast-paced, pressure-packed group competition. Just leave Hookum out, and it will slowly take over a room.
